Chris and I love any reason to have a celebration and make the house festive so were excited for Easter to arrive. Growing up Catholic, this was an important holiday for both of our families. After Easter mass, Chris and I both had Easter egg hunts and have very fond memories of them.
When I’m with family (my nephews), I love helping to dye and hide the eggs, but until we have children of our own, we still like dyeing them ourselves. Chris wasn’t super excited to take a picture with our eggs, which you can see from his facial expression. I thought they looked great though and wanted to show off our handiwork.
We were talking with our friends and my sister and brother-in-law about our favorite Easter traditions growing up. Beth and I both loved how hard our parents made it to find our baskets. My parents would hide them behind curtains, hanging up high in closests, and inside kitchen pots. It was surprisingly difficult to find them, even as we got older. Chris loved the eggs his mom would hide all over the house. Each kid had their own colored egg and the egg hunt often took hours. I’m excited to continue both of these traditions in our own house. Dyeing eggs on Saturday and hiding baskets and plastic eggs that night for our child to find in the morning. The thought of it is putting a big smile on my face as I write this, even.
